The Singapore Democratic Party () has become the first opposition party to identify the constituencies it plans to contest in the next General Election (GE).

In a statement released yesterday (2 Aug), the party said that it plans to contest Holland-Bukit Timah GRC, Marsiling-Yew Tee GRC, Bukit Batok SMC, Bukit Panjang SMC and Yuhua SMC at the next GE. These are the same wards that the SDP contested in the 2015 GE.

The SDP, which has organised several pre-GE campaign events since the beginning of this year, indicated that it will ramp up its outreach activities and continue organising walkabouts, house visits, policy launches and volunteer sessions.

The party’s next walkabout will take place on Sunday (4 Aug), where party leaders and over 80 members and volunteers in each targeted constituency will go on a walkabout at all five wards the party plans to contest.

This walkabout, which will be led by leaders such as chairman and secretary-general , is part of the party’s celebration of Singapore’s 54th National Day.

Dr Chee and Dr Tambyah added: “This ground campaign will be about the SDP’s plan to tackle Singapore’s high cost of living through the various policies proposed by the party members while maintaining a special focus on the Singaporean ambition and aspirations.

“The SDP hopes to transform Singapore into a more dynamic city ready for a rapidly changing world. We do not see the need to raise the Goods and Services Tax, cost of healthcare and essential services. Instead, we would like to free our people to be creative to reduce the economy’s reliance on foreign PMETs to make Singapore a better home for everyone here.”

Dr Chee has also convened a press meet at Yuhua Village Market and Food Centre at 9.30am on Sunday and is set to reveal more details about his party’s direction, party renewal strategy and plans for the impending GE.Follow us on Social Media
